Nokia Suite and Nokia PC Suite can be installed on the same computer, but you should not use them at the same time.
Sync and back up your information
The files and information you have on your phone are often worth more than money can buy. Just as often they are irreplaceable, too. With Nokia Suite you can keep your content safe and, when needed, you can restore it back to your original phone or to a new one.
With synchronisation - sync, that is you can make sure that certain content is always up to date both on your phone and on your computer. For example, when you create a new contact on your phone, syncing is an easy way to copy the added contact information to your computer.
Backing up your phone helps you keep your content safe if you ever happen to lose your phone. Backups also come in handy when you are about to switch to a new phone. Backing up usually takes longer than syncing.

Videos that are copied to the phone are converted to a format that is supported by the phone.
